Abstract: This presentation explores how traditional pedagogy is being impacted by fast developing digital technologies. Two interactive media platforms, Voicethread and ThingLink, were employed successfully to spark creativity and critical thinking among teacher candidates engaged in “learning to teach” science and technology courses during the 2017 and 2018 academic years. Outcomes are discussed in the context of transforming teacher training from direct teaching to engaged learning.
